About this deal

The end stays cool even after cooking on high heat, so it came in handy as I was able to turn the pan without using mitts. This particular pan only has about nine inches of cooking area whereas the top rim dimensions are more than 11 inches.

Yes, the adapters worked fine for my purposes of heating cast iron more evenly on undersized burners. As I was contemplating this, I remembered a similar thing happening to a newly seasoned cast iron pan. The handle is curved and long, which makes it convenient to hold, and has a round hole near the end to hang it on a pot rack.

What’s more, compared to other highly rated and comparably sized carbon steel pans, the Matfer Bourgeat is highly affordable—and performs just as well, if not better, than options that cost twice as much. The next day I re-seasoned it in the oven (I was out of potatoes to peel) with a Crisbee Stik three times, and got it looking good again. And like any other good quality carbon steel pan, the Matfer becomes non-stick after a good seasoning and a couple of uses. Whether your goal is to fry a quick egg, sear protein for dinner or make an elegant brunch, this pan is adept at all of the above. After a second seasoning, the entire base of the pan got a black hue that instantly made the pan look well-loved and full of character.

I’m just an amateur home cook, but I’ve read a lot about seasoning carbon steel—and I have a carbon steel wok that’s maintained seasoning fairly well, plus several cast iron pans that are seasoned well—so I’d like to think I have a basic knowledge of how to season a pan.I then tested the pan’s nonstick capabilities by frying eggs, which didn’t stick one bit—they slid right out of the pan without the need for any additional utensils.
